Borussia Mönchengladbach 1970/71

The Jersey represents the starting of the legendary “Fohlenelf” in the seventies. After winning in 1970 the first Bundesliga title in the history of the club, they managed to win back to back titles in the following year. The head to head race was just decided on the last matchday. With a 4:1 at Eintrach Frankfurt and the slip of Bayern Munich at the MSV Duisburg (0:2), Gladbach was the first german team to win two titles in a row. With legends like Jupp Heynckes, Berti Vogts and Rainer Bonhof in the lineup and coached by Hennes Weisweiller.

In this shirt Gladbach appeared for the first time on the international stage. Herbert Laumen scored the first goal for Borussia, in a 6:0-win over EPA Larnaka, on European level. The Nord-Rhine Westphalian Team finished the first half of the campaign only with one defeat.

Truly unique to this day is what happenend on the 3rd of April 1971. On the 27th Matchday between Gladbach and Werder Bremen, Herbert Laumen tried to get a header and felt badly, after the Bremen Goalkeeper Günter Bernard got the ball, into the goal. At the attempt to lift himself up with the help of the goal net, the left goal post broke and the goal collapsed. After a 12-minute-interruption without a solution, the referee decided in the 88th minute to abort the game, and the match was counted as a 2:0-win for Bremen. The whole accident resulted in new regulations. Every Bundesliga Team had to provide a second goal as a substitute and the wood goals were replaced by aluminium ones from this day on.

The classic design contains in only black and white. The white shirt is rounded up by a black collar and black sleeves. The Jersey is made out of 100% Cotton and is manufactured completely in Europe.

Our Retro Shirt is for all fans that like to remembered of the starting days of the legendary “Fohlenelf” and will never forget the Pfostenbruch vom Bökelberg!
